You need it, you want it but why?

Posted on 13 September 2009 by D' MacKinnon

Your “live” TV isn’t as live as they’d like you to believe. It’s pre-staged, scripted and packaged for easy consumption. Even reality TV isn’t real, it’s just another simulacrum. Clever editing and camera work turn the truth into a sanitized censored version of itself.
It disgusts me that people are so easily manipulated these days. Every moment delivered to you has a insidious monetary motivation behind it, every blip is revenue driven. Even today when nearly anyone can create something unique of their own they still subscribe to the drivel that’s force fed by the dinosaurs of the past.
Choice has been replaced by the illusion of choice. It appears that most do not know the difference. Those who do are possibly feeling too apathetic to care.
It’s not real punk rock if it’s brought to you by Capital One Bank.

Jolene is still recovering from the flu. She seems to be getting better but it still feeling crappy and hasn’t slept all night. Her doctor assures us that she is no longer contagious so I’ve released her from quarantine.
Thanks for the well wishes, we appreciate it.
Thankfully Dresden and I are not infected. Jolene has spent the day bleaching and disinfecting. Little guy has missed his Mommy I think, he’s been stuck hanging out with me all week.
The final building inspection for the studio is tonight! Fingers crossed that we pass. If we get the sign off I’ll be spending tomorrow hauling all of my gear from the temporary space into the new area. Unhooking all of that audio gear is a painful time-consuming task.
